about

Vocal and Piano: Ben Calvert

lyrics

She goes down in gardens to take in the view
Strange cold stone statues they wait for the rain
The maid of the mansion is awfully tired
A wish for a rainbow
It's an overturned smile

The apples are bobbing
Competitive fruit
The sweets of the orchard are dark at the root

She goes to the chapel to see what's to do
Bread in her heart and fish for a few
Swimming in silver their porcelain eyes
Cut rays in her heart as she stands in the line

The maid of the mansion in awfully tired
She stands in the pulpit her arms open wide
And a tap on the shoulder tells her it's here
The rhythm on the roof that keeps things clear

She walks up form gardens all wet from the shower
With soil in her soul for the apples and flowers
That she'll pick at the end of the day
